Does anyone know what strings these might be?

I think they might be lakland JO flats (if memory serves correctly). That would make them GHS I think.

Those look like LaBellas to me - 760FS specifically.

I agree with Matt, those look like LaBellas 760FS to me too. :)

I have 4 strings of a 5 string set of Lakland Joe Osborn Signature Flatwounds (no B string) if you want 'em Pete. Medium gauge I think (.45 .65 .85 .106). Don Kane used the B (.128) on the fretless I bought off him and the rest are still in the bag.

To "B" or not to "B"... that is the question. ;)

Cool, thanks for the offer Gila, but I'm full of flats over here. [smilie=grinning-smiley-003.gif]

Yeah, those JO flats are the best...my favorite flats I ever had! I strung 'em up on a P-bass copy for a buddy who was getting started and needed some help getting his instrument set up correctly and sounding good. These strings were the ticket! He's still rocking them.
